The last night at a hotel (for a while), last breakfast buffet, last time packing the bags. We are going to be sleeping in our own bed tonight. Another 300+ mile day of riding mostly flat and straight 70mph country roads. We made good time, arriving in Austin around 14:30 after leaving Midland at 8:30.

Traffic was pretty light until about 50 miles outside of Austin – to be expected on a weekend. We fought the wind after midmorning which makes for a tiring ride. Not too many pictures, sorry — too busy riding :-).

In the next couple of days I’ll post some more with pictures of our gear, what worked, what didn’t and ‘lessons learned’. This is just a quick update to let everyone know we made it home safely.

We want to thank everyone for following along and taking the time to comment. It’s much more interactive and fun that way.

Todays route.

  1. I haven’t been able to follow due to work keeping me very busy the last couple weeks (roughly since you were in the Reno area). Its been a very fun and interesting journey to follow. Glad you made it home safely! You’ll have to post some “vital statitics”, like miles traveled, BMW dealerships visited, etc! LOL (Sorry, couldn’t resist that one…hehehe) Again glad you’re back home safe! M C A (& BJ)

    1. Hi Mike,

      What? You are letting ‘work’ get in the way of following. Sheesh ;-). Statistics are forthcoing.


  2. Glad to see you made it home in one piece. I am looking forward to reading your ‘wrap up’ of the trip. Whens the next one? 😉


  3. Hi Di,

    Good to see you and O. made it home safely! I bet you were glad to finally sleep in your own bed. I have really enjoyed following your journey and the pics were SUPER!

    Take care and I can’t wait to read the follow-up blog!

  4. Like Mike, we have been crazy busy out here, with football, cheerleading, gymnastics, and Grayson, it has been hard to keep up with you guys. Glad you made it home safely. It was great seeing you guys on your rest stop at Mom and Dad’s. When are you planning your next trip across America? 🙂

    Thanks for sharing all those pictures too.

  5. Thanks guys. It feels good to be back home though strangely enough we didn’t miss not being home. Hard to explain. In any case, we are still enjoying our time off.

    D & O.
